Blizzard 2011!

I know it's been a while since I posted here (almost a month, wow). I've just been doing my very best to get caught up on orders. I'm still plugging away but I wanted to share a few pictures from yesterday's big Winter storm! This is the most snow I've seen since I moved here almost 6 years ago. I have been dreaming of snow like this! I LOVE IT! There are places in my front yard where the snow hits me at MID THIGH! It's so awesome! :) My kids went out to play (twice) and I walked around taking some pictures.

The snow plow left a MOUNTAIN of snow and the boys decided to dig through to the other side. They didn't actually make it because the center was solid ice, but they had fun trying. :)

this is the sidewalk right outside my front door. that ruler is about 14 inches and the snow is over the top of it! we did have maybe 4-5 inches already on the ground when the storm hit, but we definitely got a good 9 inches or so. and some of the drifts are WELL above this! 

 it was starting to get dark at this point so the pictures kinda suck, but they're so funny I had to include them. Connor came inside and told me to wait 1 minute then come down to the end of the field where the deepest snow was... and to bring my camera. when I walked out there (which was NO easy feat, this is where it's up to my knee and even my thigh at some points) I didn't see them anywhere... until I got closer. lol they dug these trenches and where just laying inside waiting for me. goofballs! they're actually deeper than they look here, I had to hold the camera up above my head to get this shot. but the next couple pictures give a little better perspective.

even thought this one is really blurry, I had to keep it. it cracks me up!

I just love how FAT all the birds look with their feathers all fluffed up in Winter! :)

you've got to click on this one and view the full size image. you can see a bunch of individual snowflakes along the top edge of that pile of snow. it's SO pretty!

Carter sitting on top of the snow plow mountain...  it was taller than my car!

Now the kids are back to school, much to their dismay. The snow looks GORGEOUS this morning in the sunlight, all glittery and sparkling! :) And I am off to get some more sewing done!
